I remember many years ago – probably in the last 1960’s my uncle Jim (who is near my age) getting out his Dad’s super 8 movies and putting them on the projector for us to watch. There on the screen was the grandfather I had never met. I don’t remember if there was sound but I saw him with his friends in their hunting camp with some of their prizes. It was amazing to me that I could see him smiling, moving about, enjoying the day. And it was captured on the screen for others to see.
Photography has always interested me but there’s something about catching the sounds and actions to be able to see in the future. The capturing of the whole is amazing.
So I have been doing more and more video with my camera so that I can capture some of the important sounds, voices and faces as they are at the moment.
Below is a small video I did from our visit to Jason and Susan at Christmas.
Visit my You Tube channel for more. By the way – you won’t find a couple of our grandchildren on there but they are loved just the same.
Here’s the 2016 Christmas card video from the Music and Gospel Art’s team here at THQ. I enjoy working with this group. They are creative and talented.
These are busy days for most with Christmas coming…and of course with Christmas comes some wonderful opportunities to say we care, to be with family (hopefully) and to have a few days to relax.
Last Saturday evening was the inaugural public performance of the Canadian Staff Songsters. They were featured in Christmas with The Salvation Army at Roy Thompson Hall. Here they are in formation. Of course, they sound great, but I was very proud of the hard work Wendy has done in the organization of this group.
Last week we bid farewell to the Vincents and the Tillsleys. We are going to miss Mark and Sharon, their presence in the territory but especially to work with them at THQ. A sound, caring couple with great insight and zeal. In a few days we begin to move desks on the 7th floor.
This being Christmas time, there are images that are creeping up on the internet from long ago and here’s one. This is Shirley Temple standing on the kettle in the USA.
The Salvation Army needs as many supporters as possible throughout the year but at this time of year especially.
Speaking of Christmas and The Salvation Army here’s a video by Steve Pavey that is humorous and creative. I hope you enjoy it and your day!
